Flower of Rosa laevigata is here.
The Genesis Project was an attempt at self-sustained living conducted on Ossabaw Island in the 1970s and early 80s. The ruins are picturesque – bathed in the moss-filtered sun.
I joined a faculty development trip to Ossabaw Island, one of the few undeveloped barrier islands on the Georgia coast, in November. The island is restricted in its use to academic pursuits (both science- and humanities-related), and its wildlife is managed by the Georgia-DNR… there are quite a few wild boar on the island.
Some areas apparently received prescribed burns. The thick leaf litter from the maritime forests smolders slowly, and the thick bark of the pines and live oaks protect them well.
